Outreach & Strategic Initiatives
In the spirit of fulfilling the mission of Mercer University and living by its own conceptual framework of the Transforming Educator, Tift College of Education makes serving the needs of schools and communities a top priority. Faculty members work in partnership with students, school districts and peer institutions to strengthen the connection of theory and practice to create meaningful, transformative change.
This commitment to service includes providing students and educators with opportunities for continuous professional development within our communities and abroad.
